The details of the character are all very busy. The amount of wrinkles in his clothes combined with the fact that they're all so identical in size and color/shading is somewhat off-putting. Plus, there just wouldn't be that many wrinkles in most fabrics, especially fabrics that are that heavy.
Consider adding in a more defined direction of light. I mean, it would be fine to keep a diffused light, but I think a defined direction of light would have more impact, which is something that you want with an subject as powerful as "Justice." Just a suggestion. It may help with the wrinkle issue, too.
I think that it would could create more tonal cohesion if you put more of a tint of the blue from the background into the shadows that fall on the character's clothes/body. Ambient light from that would be nice, too.
I love the boarder and the background, though. Very tarot-card-esque. The background texture is a great backdrop. It's not so complex that it takes away from the character nor does it look like the character is floating in the middle of nothing. The character is framed by that blue well and composition-wise, I wouldn't change anything.
